Must-See: Destination Wedding in Mexico

  |   By Roseanne Dela Rosa

I can't express how head over heels in love I am with this wedding right now. Everything from the details to the colour to the actual day is just so "wow". And, seeing as it is Cinco de Mayo today, what better way to celebrate than with a wedding that embodies the Mexican culture? Photographer extraordinaire Jillian Mitchell of Jillian Mitchell Photography was the pro behind snapping all these inspiring images, and, in a nutshell she described this wedding as a "beautiful DIY celebration"–and we couldn't agree more. "All details/design you see were done by the bride. I've never had, and I'm sure I never will, have another bride who is doing the finishing touches an hour before walking down the aisle!" Jillian shares. The couple, Myle and Chris also had a few words to share:

"There were a few things that my handsome husband and I were certain that we wanted for our wedding. We wanted a small, intimate gathering of our close friends and family.  Our petite guest list of 19 people suited this requirement perfectly. We wanted to find the perfect location that had the right mix of sweetness and charm. We found just that in the small, fishing village of Sayulita, Mexico. We wanted to find a photographer that would be able to understand us and share our vision for our big day. We were lucky enough to find that in the uber-talented Jillian Mitchell. She was able to capture the magic of the day and put it into print. But most of all, we wanted our wedding to reflect us. We included lots of DIY projects and personal touches, making our wedding our very own. The day was amazing and it couldn't have happened without all the hard work of our loving friends and family. Oh, and an awesome photographer doesn't hurt either!"
